Featured Row – Trehudreth Downs

The long stone row on Trehudreth Downs on Bodmin Moor has seen significant damage in the past.  Only the upper and lower ends now survive. The row extends over 460m and is composed of stones of very different sizes. In common with the stone row at Leskernick the cairns on the top of Brown Gelly are hidden from view along most of the length only appearing at the very top.  This feels deliberate and taken together with the substantial number of other reveals associated with stone rows provides further evidence that the rows were carefully positioned to interact with the landscape.

The Brown Gelly cairns are suddenly revealed as you reach the upper end of the row.
